Lost Patrol Challenge part 3: Terminators


Utterly fed up with watching their more aberrant brethren messing up a simple recovery mission, the Ultramarines step up to the plate with a contingent of first company veterans.  Will the bulk of the tactical dreadnaught amour see them safely through the infested jungles below?  Why not! It always seemed to do them alright on the space hulks

Wurrshuvs Revenge: Battle for Orks Drift

Campaign Map

The guys over at Advanced Tau Tactica are currently running a global campaign centering on the Invasion of a T’au planet by Ork Forces under the leadership of Warboss Wurrshuv.  The campaign has been running for 5 weeks now, and with no clear winner in sight I have decided to commit the forces of Kel’lys Sept to the fight.  For the Greater Good!

‘Double Tap’ Tournament 06/05/2018


Last weekend I attended the Double Tap III tournament here in Cardiff, hosted as usual by the ever awesome Firestorm Games. The event itself was run by Vale Renegades, one of the most popular 40k gaming groups in South Wales. Although I didn’t take copious notes (or indeed photos) of the event, I just thought it might offer up a quick summary of the event and how the T’au faired in pursuit of the Greater Good!

‘Warshed’ Tournament 24/02/18


Last weekend I attended the Warhshed tournament held by the Cardiff Wargames Club  at the excellent Firestorm Games. The format was 5 games over two days using the Open War card deck to determine Missions, Deployment and Twists.

I decided to take my T’au once more, the list for which was covered in a previous post.

PART 4.3: The Artemis Hive Campaign

MISSION 4.3: ‘Undeniable’


Mission Setup:
The Ultramarines’ drive on, slicing through the defences with grim determination and methodical devastation. Bolter shells chatter and promethium flames flare, answered by the whistle of guided missiles and the sharp crack of pulse rounds. The human defenders continue to fall, like cattle they are butchered in the streets now slick with blood and gore. Almost all human resistance has collapsed, with units throwing down their arms before the advancing marines, begging for forgiveness. The more wary run away and attempt to hide, and wisely so as the Ultramarines meat out the Emperors justice on those they find cowering before them.

PART 4.2: The Artemis Hive Campaign

MISSION 4.2: Unrelenting


Mission Setup:
While the battle of the bunkers rages on, the Ultramarines spearhead drives on deeper and deeper into the network of defence lines, butchering and burning as they go. While the Tau put up an organized, efficient defense, their human comrades are melting like ice under the midday sun. Units throw themselves at the Ultramarines feet, begging for forgiveness and mercy, but receive none.
